COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison Rue is an unfiltered, bottle conditioned, Belgian/French-style farmhouse ale. This is a beer of subtlety and complexity, with malted rye, spicy, fruity yeast notes, biscuit-like malt backbone and a slight citrus hop character. With age, this beer will dry out and will become more complex with rustic notes of leather and earth from the contribution of a wild yeast strain. Being a saison, Saison Rue is ambiguous unto itself as it is a different beer when fresh and when aged.

Brilliant sour farmhouse aroma. Somewhat too sweet for me personally and a little boozy. I was hoping it would be a bit dryer and a little more tart

Date: 7/19/2009 Source:Mekong Tasting at Mekong with head brewer Jonathan Brue. Light spiciness and some grain with little fruitiness in aroma. Clear light straw with small white head. Nice spicy flavor with hints of juniper and coriander. Dry spicy finish with no fruitiness and hint of Brett.

750 ml purchased at Greens on Buford Highway. Thank God this beer doesn’t have that ridiculous amount of carbonation the Orchard White had. I tried that one today as well and it was ridiculous. This beer has a nice translucent orange/copper color, with a thin head sitting on top. Not bad looking for a saison. A decent brett aroma. Not much of a rye aroma to me. When there is brett in a beer that is all I am able to smell. There is a slight sweet aroma, but really nothing more, if you ask me. Fairly pungent beer. Wow, flavor is not what I was expecting. A fairly sweet flavor. The brett is short lived and to tell you the truth muted in the flavor; I was hoping for more! There is a nice sweet malt almost sweet honey/yeast flavor. Nothing in the flavor really stands out to me. The brett becomes more noticeable towards the aftertaste, but again not enough for me.

750 ml Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar: Hazy pale peach color with a medium, fading egg shell white head. Aroma is spice, fruit and a hint of sour brett. Flavor is fruity (ripe apricot, some citrus and pear) with a peppery bite, lightly tart with a rather dry grapefruit finish. Medium body is smooth with lively carbonation.

750ml - Aroma is sharp with spicy bubblegum yeast, hops, straw malts and a touch of brett. Flavor is complex. Spice from aroma is present but mellowed by the rye and soft chewy hops. Has a nice bretty finish. Palate is tart but soft. A very tasty American saison.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - APR 9, 2010
Bomber. Pours opaque gold, off white head. Aroma is funky, musty, and tangy. Flavor is the same plus salty, meaty, and fruity. I rather like it!

Tap at brewery. Cloudy orange with white head. Some sour nose and citrus. A bit metallic. Citrus and tart. Decent body. Pretty good but I expected more.

ej (1330) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2013
Light golden straw-like pour, producing a large, fluffy but rather short lived head. Aroma of dried grass with subdued yeast notes as well as a distinct bitter twang, resembling freshly cut grapefruits. Nice complex flavour with loads of gras, light sweetness and a semi-dry, light bitter finish. Well balanced. Mouthfeel is prickly with high carbonation and close to medium. Very refreshing.

750 ml bottle pours a dark golden color with a nice white head. Aromas of Brett, light hops, spice. Medium bodied, complex and interesting

Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Smells funky with hints of stone fruits. Taste is funk, hay, white fruits and stone fruits. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and lively mouth-carbonation, Bruery Saison Rue finishes with a lingering subtle funk.
